Today In Communication History
On this date in 1944, BBC adopted a voluntary code not to broadcast any discussion of issues for two weeks before scheduled parliamentary debates—the so-called Fourteen Day Rule.
On this date in 1955, Federal Communications Commission began hearings in Washington about whether to allow US broadcasters to transmit subscription television programmes. Over 25,000 submissions are received, running to 92 volumes of printed evidence.
On this date in 1993, Michael Jackson granted his first interview in 15 years to Oprah Winfrey. In the interview, Jackson claimed that he has a disorder that destroys the pigmentation of the skin and that he had had very little plastic surgery.
NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.
February Sweeps Period runs from February 4, 2016 and ends March 2, 2016.

Google announced that it will be banning Flash ads from its advertising network. As of June 30 of this year, advertisers will no longer be allowed to upload display ads to the Google Display Network using Flash. On January 2, 2017, Google will stop displaying Flash ads altogether. Instead, Google is informing all advertisers to use HTML5, which is less prone to malware.
HBO Now has roughly 800,000 paying subscribers since launching in April 2015.

#1 ABC’s ‘World News Tonight‘ finished with an average 9.27 million total viewers.
#2 NBC’s ‘Nightly News‘ finished with an average 9.23 million total viewers.
#3 CBS’ ‘Evening News‘ finished with an average 7.75 million total viewers.
CBS Cuts ‘Angel From Hell’
‘Angel From Hell’, one of the few new series on CBS this season, surprisingly was cancelled after holding steady (6.76 million viewers overall), and retaining more than 80% of its lead-in for the fifth time in five original airings. Nearly any other network would love those kind of numbers but for The Tiffany Network, good is not enough.
Apple TV Expands Voice Dictation Capabilities
The third beta version of the Apple TV’s tvOS 9.2 operating system, just launched for third-party developers, expands on the device’s voice dictation capabilities. Using the fourth generation Apple TV’s Siri-integrated remote, users can now speak words instead of typing them, significantly mitigating the difficulty of, say, entering a username or password. Voice search was already available in some areas (including Netflix and Hulu searches), but the new updates mark a significant expansion of the Apple TV’s voice dictation functions.
Food For Thought
◎ Global consumer confidence ended 2015 on a subdued note as the index declined two points from the third quarter to 97. Compared to first-quarter 2015, confidence in the fourth quarter remained flat in Asia-Pacific at 107, while Europe edged up four points to 81. All other regions ended the year less confident than they started.
◎ More than half (55%) of respondents around the world believed they were in recession in the fourth quarter of 2015, a modest increase from the start of that year (53%)—and a level that often exceeds official economic definitions.
◎ More than 18,000 new retail stores have opened in the U.S. since 2007, and 88% of that expansion has come from small-format stores.
◎ Online shopping is growing around the world, but is this affecting how people are shopping in physical stores? Consumers aren’t simply “showrooming”—browsing in store and then going online in search of the lowest-cost option. They’re also “webrooming”—researching online and buying in stores.
◎ What makes a strong corporate reputation? While few brands would argue the need for effective management, quality products and a strong social responsibility platform, many are overlooking one of their greatest assets when it comes to reputation management: their employees.
◎ 79% of wireless subscribers in the U.S. say they text in general, and U.S. smartphones users 18 and older spend 4 hours and 39 minutes on communication apps each month. So the question today isn’t if you can reach someone with a mobile message. It’s when and where.
Smartphone Penetration Nears 80% of the US Mobile Market
Some 79.3% of US mobile subscribers aged 13 and older owned a smartphone during the 3-month period ending in December 2015 (Q4), reports comScore. That represents a slight uptick on a quarter-over-quarter basis (from 77.4% in Q3), after growth had slowed through the first 9 months of the year. comScore notes that Apple finished the year with 42.9% of smartphone subscribers, down 0.7% points from Q3. Android remained the top platform up 1% point to 53.3% of subscribers, while Samsung was the #2 OEM with 28.4% share of subscribers, up 0.8% points.
In total there were 6 apps that boasted more than 50% reach among US adult smartphone mobile media users (iOS and Android platforms). These were led again by Facebook (76.8%), followed by Facebook Messenger (62.5%), YouTube (61.3%), Google Play (51.9%), Google Maps (50.9%) and Google Search (50.1%). Meanwhile, Instagram (#9) reached almost 4 in 10 (39.1% of) adult mobile media users, while Twitter reached about 1 in 4 (24.5%).
Social Media Research
Instagram Blows Past Twitter For #2
New social media sites can take off then subsequently crash in less time than it takes for Cam Newton to throw a postgame tantrum i.e. Peach and Meerkat? A new report takes a look at just where those established sites are now, 10 years into the social media boom.
Pinterest and Tumblr, the other two top-five sites, also saw faster growth than Twitter during 2014 and 2015. Pinterest is nipping right behind Twitter in users. This year it will have 54.6 million, just 2.2 million fewer than Twitter. While Instagram may be seeing the fastest growth, Instagram parent company Facebook remains the king of social media.
Facebook will have 162.9 million domestic users this year, meaning more than half of all Americans use the site, a first for any social network. By 2020, 53.1% of Americans will use the site. By comparison, 34.8 percent will use No. 2 social site Instagram. Facebook’s growth has slowed appreciably since the mid-2000s, but it is still gaining. Most of that is coming from older people. “Usage increases are coming primarily from people who are Generation X and older,” eMarketer principal analyst Debra Aho Williamson says. “Plenty of teens and young adults still use Facebook, but growth is slowing in these groups.” Not surprisingly, in addition to having most of the users, Facebook also captures most of the social media ad spending – 73.4%, according to eMarketer estimates.
More Than Half of Americans Will Use Facebook In 2016
It will retain its dominance in usage and social ad spending
This year, for the first time, more than half of the US population will use Facebook, according to eMarketer’s latest social network usage forecast. In 2016, 50.3% of Americans of all ages will be on Facebook at least once a month, up from 49.3% in 2015. Facebook will remain the dominant social network by a wide margin through at least 2020, the end of eMarketer’s forecast period. This year, 162.9 million US internet users will log on to the site at least once a month. Facebook-owned Instagram, the second-most-used social network, will have 89.4 million US users this year, or 27.6% of the population. Twitter is a distant third, with 56.8 million users this year, representing 17.5% of the US population.
“Facebook remains the king of social networks, and the usage increases are coming primarily from people who are Generation X and older,” said eMarketer principal analyst Debra Aho Williamson. “Plenty of teens and young adults still use Facebook, but growth is slowing in these groups.” As a result of Facebook’s strong usage rates, it will continue to command the lion’s share of US social network ad spending. This year, Facebook will capture 73.4% of social network ad spending in the country, or $9.86 billion. Twitter is a distant second, on course to capture 13.8% of US social network ad dollars, or $1.86 billion.
Another important milestone for Facebook this year is that more than half of US mobile phone users will be Facebook users. In 2016, 52.9% of mobile phone users will log on to Facebook at least once a month from their mobile phone. And mobile will continue to play an important role in Facebook”s growth. This year, 86.0% of US Facebook users will access the platform through a phone, with that figure climbing to 91.0% by 2019. Strong user engagement on mobile is helping to drive Facebook’s mobile ad revenues, which this year will amount to 19.2% of total mobile ad spending in the US (Google is No. 1 with a 31.7% share).
Even with Facebook’s explosive growth in mobile, Twitter still leads in terms of the percentage of users who access the service via mobile, as well as in the percentage of revenue from mobile. This year, 92.3% of Twitter’s users will log on via their phones. And while Facebook is expected to derive 82.0% of its US ad revenues from mobile this year, eMarketer forecasts that 90.0% of Twitter’s ad revenues this year will come from mobile. “Twitter and Facebook are far ahead of other companies in the percentage of ad revenue that comes from mobile. They are helping to convince marketers that mobile is important to their business strategy,” said Williamson.
